Men’s Health, a holistic perspective ;
As I decided to write about health issues this man’s article, I was in conflict. My first thought was to write about possible homeopathic remedies for a pathology related mostly male, BPH. But by meditating on my experiences working with adult males in the past decade, I decided there an underlying pattern that is more frequent than any individual pathology. This pattern of thinking is not only for men. My concern is that men have less capacity and support to process and address the issue. To further complicate the situation often occurs in a way in which the problem can be seen as a force. So instead of sharing homeopathic remedies that can be used to treat BPH and weak urinary stream, which will focus on the detriments of self-sacrifice and workaholic mentality.
Society values a strong work ethic and material comforts. The way to get more material comfort and financial security is by hard work. I see people who measure their own value of life / hard they work and how much they buy. This is a mindset problem when you look in our lives holistically, and we are putting too much emphasis on one aspect of a much bigger picture – the whole person. Someone may believe that by obtaining a certain level of income, living in a particular house, and send their children to a particular school feelings of discontent will disappear suddenly. But then, as these objectives are met and things do not change, they more often than larger goals rather than reassessing the game they are playing. The individual gets tired and anxious to try so hard only to fall short of that feeling of satisfaction that leads him / her to work much harder and further aggravating the situation of stress.
had a patient who came to my office after reprogramming your first visit on three different occasions, because “something” came up at work. He explained that he had a high pressure, high paying job and was a major project that was not developing as expected and that the brunt of the responsibility carried. He had been playing out for almost a year and was paralyzed and could not walk outside the project or company. I asked why I could not leave work and explained that their children attended private school, the family belonged to a country club, and everyone had grown accustomed to a comfortable life. His wife did not want to have any of the stress or anxiety that he suffered while at home. They were trying to protect children from the sandcastle they had built in the tide washed out. I asked both parents if they want one of their children to work in a work situation as stressful as the father was trying. Both emphatically said, “No!” I encouraged them to quit modeling this behavior of self-sacrifice on behalf of a “better” life. If this behavior modeling are telling children that they must sacrifice their own health and mental stability for the sake of the social situation of the family. Instead, they should focus on the whole picture of the joy that includes being comfortable with what they have and what they are, while embracing the desire for improvement. They must recognize that health is our greatest asset, and without it nothing else matters.
This is a different kind of article that others have written. I have no choice but to recommend that deals with the issues mentioned. And it’s certainly not a quick fix, one size fits all solution for these very complicated problems. I share the information because I want men to be aware that these dynamics occur and interfere much with our ability to be healthy and happy. Spouses and partners want to know that the emotional burden of a stressful life is as harmful to health as a diet full of processed junk food. There is no single solution, but the goal is that the very transformation of an individual with the support of a team that understands the complexity of health holistically. And there must be a willingness to look at all aspects of one’s life are rooted to see where the underlying imbalances. If you think you may fall into a category of stop thinking about what I have shared and find a Naturopathic or another nearby to help you get your health, energy and vitality back on track holistic practitioner.
